RAF Police Associates

This website is nothing to do with the organisation known as the RAF Police Association although I am a member and Lifetime Vice President of the Association. It may feature Association members on its pages and is used by RAF Police Association members in preference to the new RAF Police Association website.

It is provided, and has been provided by me personally for the last 18 years, as a link for RAF Police Association memebers, serving and past members of the RAF Police and Provost branch and associated trades and groups as well as for non RAF personnel to maintain contact and provide a service.

It is the site formally known as the RAF Police Association website.

You should be aware that the new RAFPA Website is utilising "Canvas" imaging software which has the ability to both copy HTML information from your computer and to identify it. If visitors wish to prevent information from being obtained from their computer they are advised to either use the TOR Browser to access the site or obtain an add-on, such as "CanvasBlocker", as a means to protect their privacy.

iPhone/iPad scam: How to get rid of the error that could cost you £50

At the ECM on the 17th October, I have been told that 5 Executive Council members voted to have me expelled from the Association but 7 voted against it so my suspension has been lifted and I am back to being a member of the Association again.

I wish to record my personal thanks to the members of the EC who supported me, the individual branches (even those whose secretaries voted to expel me but have individually supported me) and the many members, and indeed non-members who have supported me though this difficult period.

I'm afraid though that some members still don't accept that anything wrong was done by them and I am to blame for all that has fractured the Association. But I wish to apologise to the members of the Association for any damage caused by my actions in the last six months and I hope others will do the same to draw a line under the whole sorry affair.

Still no apologies from the National Officers and the Trustees to the members.  Well I didn't really expect anything to be honest.  I will end this here as the National Officers and Trustees who were at that ECM in Gateshead in October 2014 - we all know who they were (and in most cases still are) obviously have no intention of apologising to the members for the trouble they caused.

It is interesting to note that with all the messages of congratulations for my award of the Alan Rusling Memorial Award, the silence from the National Officers, the Trustees, and last year's Chairman/Trustee was deafening. No drawing the line for them.
